Gran Malbec

Tasting Note

SINGLE VINEYARD

Intense violet color. The nose is complex, with aromas to black and ripe fruits, raspberries, plums marmalade and typical nuts of Valle de Uco. Subtle creamy sensation seasoned with touches of vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon. All is concentrated. In the mouth it is an authentic delight, with an excellent structured body in full equilibrium. Magnificent tannins, the polyphenols almost can be chewed. It provides a sensation of silkiness and sweetness, due to its aging in French oak barrels. A wine to remember.
